What is in the meat and beans group? Hamburgers, turkey, tuna, peanuts, and much more.

Goofy verse and humorous illustrations give young readers oodles of examples from the meat and beans group and highlight some of their health benefits. Names of foods in this group are printed in color for easy identification.

Enjoy this tasty treat of a book!

Reviews

“With highly readable bits and pieces about which yummy foods have which nutrients and vitamins, these books in the Food Is CATegorical series are just right for sharing with young kids, introducing the value of healthy foods and exercise through silly rhymes, puns, and zany color cartoons of cats in wild action.” (Booklist)

“A multi-hued crew of cartoon cats presents the various food groups and the practices of a healthy lifestyle. Each book reports which foods are in the titled group and provides simple explanations of how they affect the body. Cleary’s consistent reminders to children to help the adults in their lives eat better are helpful, too.” (School Library Journal)
